Bug Description

The Mozilla Open Badges Backpack does not exist anymore. Therefore, we should not be trying to connect to the server and pull badges. Furthermore, any badges that came from Mozilla Backpack won't be displayed anymore. It would be good to show a note in the block on the display and edit screens to that effect to let people know why badges are not displayed rather than simply not displaying them.

At minimum these things will need to be dealt with:

- Remove Mozilla as backpack source from config-defaults
- Remove Mozilla from being searched for as backpack
- Display a message in the Open Badges block about Mozilla Backpack not being available anymore when badges had been selected from it (if we keep that information somewhere in the database). This would be good to have as general message so it can also work for Badgr and Open Badge Passport if a person migrates to another site that doesn't have them enabled.
- Add Badgr as default option into config-defaults if not already there.
